Fiddler’s Green – The galway girl

All Music

Well, I took a stroll down the old long walk
On a day -I-ay-I-ay
Met a little girl and we stopped to talk
On a fine soft day-I-ay

And I ask you, friend, what’s a fella to do
‘Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
And I knew right then I’d be takin’ a whirl
‘Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl

We were halfway there when the rain came down
On a day-I-ay-I-ay
And she asked me up to her flat downtown
On a fine soft day-I-ay

And I ask you, friend, what’s a fella to do
‘Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl
And I lost my heart to the Galway girl

When I woke up I was all alone
With a broken heart and a ticket home

And I ask you now, tell me what would you do?
If her hair was black and her eyes were blue
You see, I travelled around, been all over this world
Oh boys, I ain’t seen nothin’ like the Galway girl
